To know about our natural hides ethically sourced from Argentina
Our natural sheepskins, goatskin, fox and otter furs come from the mountains of Patagonia Argentina. It is well-known that Argentina has the finest cowhides in the world, they are produced with care and the tanning process we use leave the hides silky, soft, and beautiful. They are enjoyed and loved for generations.
Fur trade in Argentina maintains centuries-old crafts traditions. The men and women of our country fur trade are proud of the skills and traditions they maintain. Each fur garment is individually cut and sewn by skilled artisans.
Each natural sheepskin, goatskin and cowhide throw are made in a fair-trade environment, all 100% ethically sourced, (i.e a by-product of the meat industry) and no animals are harmed specifically for the use of the skins. We make use of a beautiful natural resource that, if properly cared for, will last for a lifetime.
Real fur is an organic material, they are fully biodegradable. Faux fur (fake fur) is made of petrochemicals which do not break down easily and will remain in landfills for centuries, exacerbating already existing ecological and environmental problems.
To market the products made in natural fox and otter skins, PITUCA is registered in NATIONAL WILDLIFE. These culling programs help keep the fox and otter population within reasonable numbers.
PITUCA selects the best hides, unmatched in beauty and quality, and meets precise standards of hair quality, coloring, tanning excellence, and size. Variations and irregularities in texture or color are characteristic of the skin. Each piece is a one of a kind – no two are the same.
Sheep wool is rich in lanolin, it is naturally impermeable and as it is 100% protein. It creates an environment that is not conductive to the development of bacteria, therefore it will keep you away from disease. Wool is a natural fur product.
